    use of "refer" v/s "refer to"

    Whiich of the following is a correct usage?

    "please refer to the brochure for details"

    or

    "please refer the brochure for details"

    The intended meaning is obvious, I suppose

    Please refer to the brochure for details. (OK)
    ==> Please look in the brochure for details.

    Please refer the brochure for details. (Not OK)
    ==> Please give the brochure a referral.
